Well, that spoils the fact that the hero didn’t really die… I guess DreamWorks was afraid people would think it was darker than it really is and wouldn’t take the kids to see it. Note that in the similar The Incredibles several characters died, but then again, Incredibles wasn’t a total parody.
Anyway I will see this movie (big surprise there ) because it just looks so funny. It’s Farrell and Fey, it’s basically an hour-and-a-half SNL sketch! But how’d they get [STRIKE]Sinistral[/STRIKE] Brad Pitt for Metro Man??
I wonder how DC comics let DreamWorks get away with such a blatant Superman rip-off however. Flying and Super strength, OK, lots of heroes with those powers… Metro- City? Kinda… Heat vision? Not so much. Not to mention the Kryptonian origin(s) parody… maybe they had a special deal. After all if this is a hit it will only bring more attention to Superman I think.
